Are You Inquiring about a Challenge?

Presumably, if you're reading this blog, you've run into Homestar Runner before. And if you haven't, browse around this site immediately. Anyway, occasionally they'll feature a flash video game that's a spot-on replica of a vintage console or computer game: witness Peasant's Quest (which is actually about as long a game as the original King's Quest). If you're my age, hearing the theme song for Peasant's Quest play through a computer speaker evokes an entire era. An era of staying up all night trying to beat computer games.

Anyway, point is, today Homestar Runner has a new game up, a spot-on recreation of Megaman. If you don't know the site, this link explains the characters in the game. And here's the game. Brings back all kinds of memories. Memories of staring at a television while my youth passed me by.
